I'll most likely be going to Cambridge in December for a quick business trip. Are there places you recommend for dinner? Are there places near by I should see? I'll only be there for two days.
For dinner/lunch you should definitely check out Inman Square. I ate at Puritan & Company and it's amazing. Have also heard that East Coast Grill & Raw Bar, Restaurant Casa Portugal, Tupelo, East by Northeast, and Oleana are fantastic. Inman Square is walking distance from Central Square T-Stop so if you have a car might be more accessible. In Harvard Square, Russell House Tavern and Grafton Street Pub & Grill are good bets. If you like sushi, Cafe Sushi in Harvard Square is excellent.
Mentioned in this answer:
Orinoco is my personal favorite. Cozy setting with incredible Venezuelan cuisine, it is a gem of Harvard Square. Their churrasco is to die for.
Alden & Harlow is also a terrific alternative. Great to grab drinks and interesting gourmet tapas. You can't go wrong if you ask the waiter/waitress for suggestions.
